Mayor Ted Wheeler is convening a series of meetings across the City of Portland for community members to learn about and engage with future policy related homelessness and livability. Join Southeast and East Portland neighbors and local businesses on Saturday, February 1 for a conversation about what we can do to help solve the homelessness crisis.
WHEN: Monday, March 19, 2018, 5:30 to 7:30PM
WHERE: Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, Portland, OR
Come to Revolution Hall from 5:30 to 7:30 PMon March 19 to kick off of a community-led initiative designed to explore and address racism as a driver of homelessness, and disparities among homelessness, in Multnomah County.
The initiative is named SPARC (Supporting Partnerships for Anti-Racist Communities), and it’s coming to Multnomah County this year to build on research into roots and best practices already under way in 10 other communities. SPARC is an initiative of the Center for Social Innovation (C4).
The March 19 gathering is part of a week of events for community members, service providers and other key partners. The kickoff event will include light refreshments and a panel discussion featuring local leaders and service providers. SPARC will then spend the year working closely with community members and partners in A Home for Everyone, our community’s nearly four-year-old effort to address homelessness.
